Most Helpful Positive Review I never do this but
I bought this in medium/dark yesterday solely because of reviews so today after using it last night i felt i absolutely had to leave one of my own. I am so so caustious and skeptical about what i put on my face because I breakout so easily. So i added 4 drops to my cetafil daily moisturizer before going to bed last night and took a pic so i could compare to how i looked this morning. I didnt expect to notice any difference after the first try honestly but I did! Absolutely sold on this after just one use and want to get the body one as well. I have a natural tan glow and it reduced the redness or hid the redness anyway of my current breakout so I am so pleased!! Highly recommend to anyone thinking about trying . I know its pricey but when it comes to your face you want the best and this i think it is!
Most Helpful Critical Review Has Fragrance and Self Tan Smell
I bought both the light/medium and medium/dark. Unless you are losing your olfactory senses, these have fragrance in them that is apparent before the bottle is even open. After application that self tan smell is pretty strong as the tan develops and stays until you wash your face. It's more noticeable than other self tanners I have used on my face. The light/medium didn't work at all, only the medium/dark. I used 5 drops in my face cream that I mixed in my hand. The formula is a very thick, heavy oil that is impossible to use under makeup with oily skin and difficult to mix with an oil free cream. My makeup turned to sludge. I had to spray a ton of makeup setting spray to dry it out. Frankly it's a lot of extra work that is not worth it. This is so expensive and you go through it faster having to use so many drops. The reviews just are not accurately describing what I received which is frustrating.
Reviewed by 128 customers Gives my face a subtle, natural looking tan.
Alex from Florida
I bought this product hoping to have something easy to put on my face before bed that will give me some color. I used to put tanning mousse on my face but it's a lot of maintenance to do that all of the time and it causes breakouts. I love these drops! I have olive skin and I use about 4-5 drops mixed in with my moisturizer. It gives me a nice, natural looking tan. Just be sure to scrub your hands after so they don't stain!
Definitely worth the money!
Lizzy from Hopkinsville, Ky
I use 2 drops of this product mixed in with my face moisturizer at night to have a nice, natural looking tan In the morning. Works great! Looks nice and even! No orange effects. It's buildable (if you want a darker tan; the more the drops, the darker the tan). Will definitely continue to purchase the product, it's worth every penny!
A must have!
Kell from Mobile, AL
A couple of drops every other day is all you need to have naturally glowy skin. As a fair-skin red head this is a must have in my skin care routine to give me the perfect amount of color.
I will continue buying this product
Betty from Turlock,ca
This is my first time doing a review but because I loved how it came out I just had to do one I used the self tan drops with a light moisturizer I did 5 drops had to be extra but it came out the next morning very pretty color I did this 2 nights and achieved the desired color.
This is going straight in the garbage
Kat from Scottsdale, AZ
I had a nice base tan I wanted to keep looking nice. I thought this product would be the answer. It wasn't. 5 days later and I look a spotted snake. It's peeling like I was burned to a crisp. I used a loofa and exfoliated it all off of me. Bad product. Save your money and just use Jergens natural glow
Really wanted to like this product
KT from San Francisco, Ca
I had high hopes for this. Especially considering the price and the lack of bad reviews. However, it made me break out... BAD. I do have sensitive skin but the breakout that resulted was intense. My skin is just clearing up. I considered giving it another go but since you have to use the product pretty regularly.. it's absolutely not worth what I had to deal with.
Love this product
Demi from Mesa, AZ
I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I have used other self tanners on my face because I don't want damage from the sun but want a tanned look. Other products went on unevenly and had that self-tanner smell. This product has no smell and looks very natural.
A little goes a long way. Beautiful Results
Honey West from Dallas TX
A little goes a long way. I exfoliate 1st and only use at night. Apply about 1 hour before bed and then add my moisturizer. Love it.
love this product BUT NOT FROM ULTA
Unsatisfied Customer from Los Angeles, CA
Awesome color but would definitely not buy from Ulta ever again!
I would buy this agan
Sue from Mi
I like this product very much. It fits easily into my morning routine and I am protecting my fave from sun tanning my face.
Eadserica from Parrish FL
After one day of use I had amazing results and this is coming from someone who is a owner of a tanning salon. Still shocked how well it works

Overall a product I will continue to use but apply very lightly on my fair skin cuz the product produced a lot of color quickly & lasts.
Absorbed immediately, no residue.
Ray from Pennsylvania
These tanning drops do work nicely. They give you a pretty bronzed glow. But I have noticed my skin breaking out and when it comes off it is a little patchy. My face is always several shades lighter than my body and in one use it got my face to match my body. I didn't notice a strong smell like some people were saying. It is quite pricey so hopefully this will last a while.
Awesome Face Tanner!
Stacie from Bend Oregon
This product is amazing. I mix a couple drops in with my moisturizer and boom... my face looks tan for about 5 days.
I love this product.
Smash from Charlotte North Carolina
I just add this to my sun screen every morning and my face doesn't look so pale.
It gives a nice glow to your face
Teach45 from Fayetteville, Ga
I mix it with my nighttime moisturizer at bedtime and wake up with a nice face tan. Doesn't look artificial or orange.
Best Self-Tanner for Face !!
A Myers from Mississippi
I always wear 110 spf on my face, but I hardly ever put sunscreen on the rest of my body (terrible, I know). So, my face is NEVER the same color as my body, like vastly different colors. I could never go without makeup, even during the summer because my face made me look like I was sick or something due to it being so light. This product is a GAME CHANGER. I use it almost every night, a drop or two in serum and a drop or two in my moisturizer and I wake up with such a beautiful, natural tanned glow, that I honestly think makes me look like I already have makeup on. I think this is worth every single penny!!
xoshannon28 from NY
I was worried about streak spots but I haven't noticed any. It has a slight smell to which I was worried about in the beginning. Ive used other self tans that are way worse. Does make your face look greasy from the oil so have to add makeup over it. I use one drop a day and notice a difference in hours
These drops are amazing!
Katie R from Dallas, TX
I have been using these drops about a week and probably use them every other day and I can already see a big difference! It looks like a natural glow and they are cool proof to use!
I really liked it
LB from Idaho
I got this as a sampler, slapped it on with a bunch of other free samples I got. I continued with my day until I stopped dead in my tracks when I caught a glimpse of my complexion in a mirror. Was super surprised how great my bare skin looked. I had a nice glow that looked very natural. Thanks for letting me try! I will be buying this once my sample runs out.
I had high hopes, but it was a "No Go".
bajayoung from CA
I use to have a mobile spray tan business many years ago. Also, over the past 10 years, I have also tried many many different self-tanners in hopes of finding the right color so I don't have to buy spray tan solution for my machine because it would just be for me now. Unfortunately, The Face Illuminating Drop is not 'The One' for my skin tone. It left my skin with a yellow/orange tint that looked like I was sick. I know how to prep my skin: I always exfoliate, shave and prepare the skin properly before trying a self-tanner so, the bad color was not from anything like not preparing your skin properly. For my skin tone, this product was terrible. I can not recommend this product to anyone with fair skin. Maybe this works great for more olive tone people. This was terrible and very pricey - no sense as to why it's sooo expensive.
Liked the product a lot
Del Ray from Alexandria, Virginia
I received some samples of this in a beauty bag. I was wary about trying it because I have pale, fair skin and thought it might give me an orange look. But it was really subtle and natural looking. Thanks for letting me try it, it's something I would buy.
New favorite self tanner
Carebear from Dallas, TX
I've tried Isle of Paradise, Tanologist, Loving Tan, all of the self tanner brands — and Tan-Luxe takes the cake! Best color, no splotches or streaks and you can mix it in with your normal moisturizer (so no need to sacrifice your skincare routine). I bought the Face drops and the Body drops in Light/Medium and I would highly recommend them both! I was worried the Light/Medium wouldn't be dark enough but it is. It's definitely more medium than light. Worth every penny!
Nina from Santa Rosa
I have a very pale face and I can really get a sun tan on my face (plus I would rather not damage my skin). These drops give a beautiful color, even though they are going on a pale base. Highly recommend folks!
best face self tan ever especially if dark
Green Makeup Freak from Arizona
hands down best face self tanner ever, no less, no streaks, just tan color that lasts for days.
